by Abdullah Qazi / July 10, 2008

Afghanistan's Ministry of Health reported on July 9, 2008 that 435 HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) positive cases have been reported from different sources.

The ministry also stated that there are an estimated 2000-2500 HIV positive cases nationwide. Despite these numbers, compared to other nations, the prevalence of HIV in Afghanistan is considered low.

Decades of war, poverty, illiteracy, massive internal and external displacement, drug trafficking and usage, existence of commercial and unsafe sex are all factors that have contributed to the rise in HIV positive cases.
